Sif Travel is a travel agency based in the town of Akranes on the west coast of Iceland. Obviously our island is rather small, so we do operate all around Iceland.


Sif Travel is a family business, owned by the same people who own and operate Thor Photography, a widely known photography instructor and tour operator.

At Sif Travel, our aim is to organize high quality tours in and around beautiful Iceland for groups and individuals, offering good personal service which is often needed when preparing for an unforgetful trip to Iceland.

Our speciality is taking care of planning photography workshops in Iceland with world-renowned professional photographers.

Sif Travel is a fully licensed travel agent and has a permit from the Icelandic Tourist Board to operate as such.
